38 Spesh & Harry Fraud Connect With Benny The Butcher & Ransom On “Band Of Brothers”

38 Spesh and Harry Fraud release “Band Of Brothers” featuring Benny The Butcher & Ransom.

38 Spesh has been so focused on producing for the last year, rappers finally got a chance to breathe. But that ended with the release of 7 Shots (which topped the iTunes Rap Chart upon its release), which once again demonstrated how effortless emceeing is for the Rochester mastermind.

Though Spesh has been content to play the background while helping others move to the forefront, his promised epic run (which started with 7 Shots), proceeds accordingly with the announcement of his forthcoming project Beyond Belief.  Produced entirely by Harry Fraud, Beyond Belief is the most personal, and intimate album in Spesh’s decorated career; and it promises him a seat at the table with rap’s elite. 

Harry Fraud thrives on being entrusted with artists most personal statements; recently, producing chart-topping projects for Curren$y (The OutRunners), Dave East (Hoffa), Lil Peep (High Fashion), Benny The Butcher (The Plugs I Met 2), Jim Jones (The Fraud Department), French Montana (Montega), Jay Worthy’s You Take The Credit, We’ll Take The Check and also contributing production to two highly-anticipated sequels; Wale’s Folarian II (“Down South” Feat Maxo Kream & Yella Beezy), Russ’ Chomp 2 (“Top Of The World” Feat Jay Electronica), and Cormega’s The Realness II (“Man Vs Myth”). 

38 Spesh & Harry Fraud Release “Speshal” & New Album Announcement

To formally announce their collaborative album, Spesh & Harry released the project’s lead-single, “Speshal,” featuring Stove God Cooks.  Now, they are back with “Band Of Brothers” featuring Benny The Butcher & Ransom.

Band Of Brothers” is a very heavy collaboration.  Not only does it feature three top-tier lyricists in their primes, but it also reflects on loss, as Spesh, Benny and Ransom have each lost blood brothers to street violence.

“This song is notable for two reasons: First off, me, Benny, and Ran have all lost blood brothers to street violence over the years, so even just the name “Band Of Brothers” holds a lot of significance” 38 Spesh reveals.  “Secondly, this is the first time the best emcees from both eras of the Trust movement have been on a track together.”

“Band of Brothers” is a ‘speshal’ song (pun intended). It sees three of the best lyricists in the game going back to back showing out. The beat came to be while Spesh and I were in the studio going through a bunch of records. When we heard the sample we both agreed it had to be flipped” Harry Fraud recalled.  “I made sure to give the track some space drum wise so my bros could flex their muscles with a multitude of flows. The way they all threaded their verses together with a common theme on the last bar was Beyond Belief!”

38 Spesh & Harry Fraud’s Beyond Belief features guest appearances from Wiz Khalifa, Curren$y, Benny The Butcher, Jim Jones, Conway The Machine, Stove God Cooks, Ransom & Elcamino. Beyond Belief will be released on 11-18-22.
